About Te Kākano

Te Kākano Aotearoa Trust is a Wanaka non-profit organisation that eco-sources seeds from the Upper Clutha area, raises seedlings in our extensive nursery, and facilitates community-based native planting and habitat restoration.

We foster community engagement with native habitat restoration, through plant propagation, planting, maintenance, education and ongoing participation.

Collaboration with local community groups, schools, businesses and individuals is central to our promotion of hands-on community land care.
